A study of the influence of the dancer Ida Rubinstein on French literary creativity between 1908 and 1939, a period during which she collaborated with many of the most significant authors and composers of the time, including Gide, Claudel, Valéry, Debussy, Ibert, Auric, Stravinsky, Ravel, Milhaud and Honegger, and was equally closely associated with many other major figures, such as Wilde, Proust, Sarah Bernhardt and Jean-Louis Barrault. Without her initiatives – imaginative, inspirational and financial – the cultural life of the century would have been considerably impoverished.
